There is an article in this month's Middle School Math Teacher about
teaching students with learning disabilities. Some of the ideas in there
might help these students.
I think the standards-based elementary programs that don't spiral too much
(like Investigations or Math Land) could be supplemented and augmented to
work for these students. Our special educator uses the 4th grade tasks with
her pull out students.

Subject: [MLMATHNET] developmentally disabled students
A teacher at MUMS has approached me about an appropriate program for
students that are in middle school but are on a 2nd and 3rd grade level,
they are developmentally disabled and are in a special class and on a
separate schedule. She would like to know if there is a program that
would work best for her students and if there was any workshops in the
state that could help her learn how to help these students in mathematics.
Does anyone have any information?
